Ingredients
  • 1 pound large scallops
  • ½ cup chopped shallots
  • ⅓ cup chopped cilantro
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh basil
  • 3 large carrots cut into matchsticks
  • 2 large limes
  • 2 Tablespoons minced or grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 teaspoons Thai red curry paste
  • 2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce (I used sriracha)
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • pinch salt and pepper
  • Optional: ¼ cup chopped peanuts
Instructions
  1. Chop all your veggies and herbs first.
  2. Finely grate zest from one of your limes. Using the remainder of the lime, squeeze 2 Tablespoons. Cut second lime into wedges for garnish.
  3. Heat coconut oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chopped shallots, carrots and minced ginger; saute until shallots are tender and carrots soften, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in curry paste, sriracha, coconut milk, fish sauce, lime peel zest and 2 Tablespoons lime juice. Simmer gently, stirring often for about 5 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle scallops with a pinch of salt and pepper on both sides. Add scallops to curry sauce.
  6. Return heat to a gentle simmer and cook just until scallops are opaque in center, 5 to 6 minutes.
  7. Gently stir in cilantro and basil.
  8. Serve over your favorite rice. I used jasmine but you could use brown rice or even quinoa.
  9. Garnish with sliced limes.
  10. Optional: sprinkle with chopped peanuts
